    End zone prayer earns teen unsportsmanlike conduct flag

    Filed under: — Jennifer Rast @ 5:53 am

    Oh the humanity!!! Someone dared pray a 5 second prayer in front of other people. The free exercise clause of the constitution means nothing when there are atheists afoot. That seconds long prayer cost him a touchdown. No touchdowns for Christians. Now, if he’d only faced Mecca and stuck his butt in the air, it would have been okay.

    Sam raised his hands in the air to honor a murdered teammate and then took a knee to thank God. The end zone celebrated lasted about five seconds.

    “I felt like I had to thank God for blessing me with the talent and passion to play football,” Sam told me. “So I dropped to a knee and thanked God for everything he’s done in my life.”

    But when Sam opened his eyes he saw a referee throwing a flag.

    Unsportsmanlike conduct. A 15-yard penalty.

    The Florida High School Athletic Association and the South Gulf Football Officials Association said Sam was not penalized for praying. Instead, they say he was guilty of violating Rule 9-5, Article 1 of the 2014 National Federation of State High School Associations football rulebook.

    The Fort Myers News-Press reports the violation covers non-contact penalties like “any delayed, excessive or prolonged act by which a player attempts to focus attention upon himself.”

    So let’s break this down.

    Did Sam’s prayer delay the game? It lasted no more than five seconds. Five seconds. It’s not like he was holding a church service in the end zone.

    “It was deemed excessive celebration in a manner that drew attention to the player,” FHSAA spokesman Cory Sobers told me. “I believe the arm motion is what drew the flag and not the kneeling or the prayer.”

    Yeah, football players never move their arms when they’re in the end zone. They stand at attention and show no sign of celebration or pride. This country is going down the toilet.
